I have started 18 vs 29 (otherwise known as 'Don't Forget Me') and it's hilarious - I laughed out loud multiple times in the first 15 minutes.



The story is delightfully, deliciously ridiculous - our heroine is 29-year-old married woman Yoo Hye-Chan whose marriage to a rising star Kang Sang-young is very much on the rocks. Believing her husband is having an affair with a co-star (according to kdramas, it seems to be a national sport to jump to conclusions :D), she decides to get a divorce. Her last conversation with her husband culminates in her yelling at him that she wishes to erase him from her memory. This being a kdrama, she is about to get her wish - on the way to the Courthouse to file divorce papers she gets into a car accident and becomes an odd sort of amnesiac - she knows who she is just fine. However, any of her memories past age 18 have been erased.

This might be just the chance for her husband, who is still very much in love with her (and is clearly guiltless in the affair accusation - his co-star has the 'deliciously eeeeeeevil other woman' written all over her) to win his wife back. After all, despite the memory loss, he (or a younger version of him) should still be in Hye-chan's memory as they were high school sweethearts. One big problem - when they were students she hated his guts at first. And her memories stop right before the incident that began to change her mind about him. Past or present - she hates him.

Hilarity ensues.

Seriously guys, I love this! It has so many of my favorite things: (a) a main character who is a celebrity; (b) big portions set during high school (in flashbacks, with thankfully different actors, not inappropriately aged characters in school uniform); (c) first love; (d) hero who is not an immature jerk but a nice guy; (e) heroine's hilarious fantasies; (f) super-evil other girl; (g) heroine who is loud and hilarious; (h) amnesia; (i) married couple falling in love all over again; (j) adorably cute pop star Siwon as hero's younger version (the boy needs a drama of his own!).

Why did nobody tell me of this drama?

Some caps to demonstrate the awesomeness )

I cannot wait to watch more!

Mr. Mousie just called me to inform me that when he took his eyes off her for two seconds Baby Mousie somehow obtained one of my sandals (which was in the room but not in the vicinity of her play mat) and was diligently licking the sole (!!!!!). Good God, I have no idea where that shoe has been - now I see why parents have kiddie leashes :)

In drama news, I was o_O to discover that Brilliant Legacy topped 40% ratings this last week. That's insane! I am sure that has been no drama for 3-4 years that got anywhere close to this. Luckily, even though I am behind, I really do like what I have seen of this drama so far - at least here, unlike with BOF, I have no resentment over good ratings.

Also, I think I might be dumping Lawyers of Korea - I am always more of an angsty-drama girl anyway, and the male lead annoys me immensely. Basically, if 18 vs 29, City Hall, or Lovers in Paris pans out as a fun not-too-emo drama, LoK is toast (I already have my angstfill with Fashion 70s so don't need another angsty one to add to the mix but would like to add a fun one). I might also get back to 9 end 2 outs instead - I liked what I saw of it some time back.

Also, I am dying to check out Friend.

A love quadrangle with Hyun Bin, Kim Min Joon, and Seo Do Young falling for the same girl? Lucky her! Not to mention every mob story needs a gangster's moll.




Just check out the sorta-Engrish synopsis: "At a time when students had to fasten their collars and crease their slacks till they're razor sharp, these four friends strutted around in their own custom-fashioned uniforms. They walked the streets with their heads held high, shoulders straight, and chests out, fearing nothing when they were together. Joon-suk, a son of a vigilant gang boss; Dong-su, the only son of an undertaker; Sang-taek, a diligent student; Joong-ho, who never keeps his mouth shut. Those are the gang of friends who share their fantasies about naked women and their awe at Bruce Lee's Kungfu. Each of their lives takes different turns as they grow up and their paths cross in conflict with each other's. Joon-suk becomes the leading henchman of his father's crime ring and Dong-su is serving for Joon-suk's rival gangs. Sang-taek and Joong-ho find themselves helplessly watching their two best friends wield knives at each other..."

Friends and future rival gangsters:



This reminds me of Snow Queen:

dangermousie: (Lobbyist OTP by miss-dian)
I decided to give it another try and watched ep 4 of Lawyers of Korea as per [livejournal.com profile] ambergold's instructions. It was very hilarious. While the insane flashback which both makes me hate Min Gook the Rich Guy and makes no narrative sense (seriously - they do not interact in any way consistent with that flashback - none of the three main characters!) pretty much guarantees this drama won't make it into a favorites list and also precludes me shipping the Heroine with Rich Guy, it's funny enough to watch for at least a few more eps. I am just going to pretend for the next few eps I watch that Min Gook is sleazy but well-paying client that enables her to gain experience and nothing more and that she and Lawyer Byun get together at the end - except for his walking out without a word years ago (I'll handwaive this as he left a message she didn't get. It's easier than handwaving Min Gook into a good person) he is pretty darn awesome - supportive and alpha at the same time, funny and with chemistry with the heroine. Also not a serial cheater, which is more than I can say for the leading man. Yes. Still bitter.

This scene with Lawyer Byun and Ya Kyung was gorgeous, though.



Sail on, my undaunted uncanonical ship!

This ep is so funny it even features a "guy protecting girl from beating with his body" scene that is hilarious! I literally LOLed. Sadly for LoK, I prefer the angsty-serious take on this such as in (leaving aside the pinnacle of this that is Hana Yori Dango/Meteor Garden) 'A Love to Kill,' (the best one - he is her bodyguard and his side job with thugs goes wrong and they are slowly beating him to death. She walks by and sees it and tries to stop it, one girl against a horde of violent criminals - telling them she is a famous star (she is) and so they can't hit her without getting in trouble and covering him with her body. But they don't care and start hitting her and he rolls over, barely conscious, shielding her with his body. They end up in hospital with serious injuries for a while and I end up in love), 'Tree of Heaven' (he begs on his knees for his enemy to stab him because otherwise the guy will go after his OTP), and 'Lobbyist' (he covers her with the last of his strength). I have to say Lobbyist, despite the happy ending is, hands-down, the most hurt-comfort drama I have ever seen. I don't think there was a single episode where Song Il Gook's character was not seriously, and sometimes horrifically, mistreated. I am still amazed he made through it with all his limbs intact. I am rather looking forward to 'Swallow the Sun,' another mercenaries drama from the same team - I am curious to see if they can top Lobbyist. (I wonder why SIG has a thing for getting roughed up in his drama - other than Lee Jun Ki's 'Time Between Dog and Wolf,' the only drama to offer some competition to Lobbyist is another SIG drama - Kingdom of the Winds.)

And that was a heck of a digression.

Also, after watching various Seoul 1945 vids on youtube, I now ship Lawyer Byun and Ae Ri just because that OTP seemed awesome in S1945. That drama is very much up my alley - gritty period epic - and I would have watched it a long time ago if it wasn't so dratted long - 70 episodes! I am sure the topic of WW2 and Korean War is worth that many, but I have the attention span of a gnat. Just point me towards the episodes with Lawyer Byun and Ae Ri tortured in the prison camp, kthanks.

Watching the youtube vids led me to discover (through 'similar vids' feature) a drama I really want to check out (also starring Lawyer Byun): 18 vs 29. It sounds adorable and I need a fluffy drama in midst of all the serious ones. The heroine is a 29-yr-old woman who married her highschool sweetheart (someone she hated in school at first but then fell for). However, things haven't been going smoothly and she has decided to file for divorce. Unfortunately for her (but fortunately for the drama), on the way to the courthouse she gets into a car accident. It being a Korean drama car accident, her injury is loss of any of her memories after age 18. It is up to her almost-ex-husband to care for her. Can they fall in love all over again?

Cute MV:



ETA: Found this "justification" on soompi for Min Gook being a bastard to Ae Ri after her miscarriage:

"I have this feeling that HMK thinks that maybe AR have other man before their marriage. So, he is angry that she have difficulty keeping babies."

Oh yes. That would be such a lovely justification. "Hey, whore, you stretched yourself out with other guys and because of it now can't keep my kids!" Forget medically unsound - that would be even sicker than what the drama has. Sometimes fans drive me up the wall.

'Tis a pity Min Gook such a bastard because occasionally he comes across as hot.



Pity.

ETA2: reading soompi, I found out the reason why Lawyer Byun left that first time. AWWWWW. Lawyer Byun, I forgive you. It's official, I want you to get the girl you like because you are a good guy.

Before I start. Quick comment. What is with all the recent cooking dramas lately? I am not complaining as hot guy wh can cook is even better than a hot guy in general, but it does seem odd. First there is MatsuJun playing a chef in the jdrama Bambino. Then there is the twdrama Delicious Relationship, starring arguably my favorite drama boy Vic Zhou (and he better not die in this one!!!). And then there are the kdramas. In Witch Yoo Hee, Jae Hee is a Chef *dies* and then there is the upcoming Gourmet with Kim Rae Won where he also plays a chef. Hmmm. I like this trend.

I am considering checking a whole bunch of kdramas out. More about them below, but I think the 'new' kdrama for me will either be My Love Patzzi (it's only 10 eps and fluffy and I have a Kim Rae Won craving), Let's Go to the Beach ([livejournal.com profile] alexandral loved it and I adore Lee Wan) or Smile Again (it sounds cute and stars Lee Dong Gun).

I dare you not to grin looking at this pic )

And after that, the next kdrama is Save the Last Dance for Me and Stained Glass as I want something utterly utterly fluffy right now so it will have to wait a week or so.

But anyway, dramas I am considering obtaining, with corresponding MVs.

As you see, a lot of numbers for some reason.

My Sister in Law is 19. It has cute boys, cracktastic fun and angst, too. The plot? Our hero is horrified to discover that the girl he has long been in love with has just gotten engaged to his older brother. He doesn't know it's an arranged agreement so she'd have money for her poor family and he'd be free of Mom's nagging to marry. So CUTE!

Vid for it )

Then there is Sweet 18. [livejournal.com profile] calledinvain thought it was sweet, it stars Lee Dong Gun and Han Jin Hye, and hey, prosecutor forcibly married off to a much younger girl? Heeeeee.

Vid here )

Then there is Hotelier (as mentioned earlier)

Hotelier MV )

Then there is 18 vs 29 about a woman who wakes up forgetting everything that happened since she was 18. Her estranged husband tries to use this as an opportunity to win her back.

Vid here )

Then there is The Sweet Spy. A spy drama with the heroine an ass-kicking policewoman? YAY.

MV here )

Then there is Say You Love Me with Kim Rae Won, because I am on a KRW kick and hey the whole, 'bad girl tries to break up the OTP by getting her bf to seduce the girl and to seduce the guy herself because she is whack' is kinda awesome in a 'Dangerous Liasons' sort of way.

Opening theme )

There is also Life if Beautiful with Ha Ji-Won (Damo!!!) and Kim Rae Won but I didn't find any vids. I am also amused by the concept of Love Letter because heeeee, even Priests are not immune from lurve in kdramas. The hero is a Priest-in-training. Whoa.

And last note. My 'in progress' pile of dramas seems to be shrinking.

here is the list )

Then there is the twdrama Delicious Relationship, starring arguably my favorite drama boy Vic Zhou (and he better not die in this one!!!). And then there are the kdramas. In Witch Yoo Hee, Jae Hee is a Chef *dies* and then there is the upcoming Gourmet with Kim Rae Won where he also plays a chef. Hmmm. I like this trend.

I am considering checking a whole bunch of kdramas out. More about them below, but I think the 'new' kdrama for me will either be My Love Patzzi (it's only 10 eps and fluffy and I have a Kim Rae Won craving), Let's Go to the Beach ([livejournal.com profile] alexandral loved it and I adore Lee Wan) or Smile Again (it sounds cute and stars Lee Dong Gun).

I dare you not to grin looking at this pic )

And after that, the next kdrama is Save the Last Dance for Me and Stained Glass as I want something utterly utterly fluffy right now so it will have to wait a week or so.

But anyway, dramas I am considering obtaining, with corresponding MVs.

As you see, a lot of numbers for some reason.

My Sister in Law is 19. It has cute boys, cracktastic fun and angst, too. The plot? Our hero is horrified to discover that the girl he has long been in love with has just gotten engaged to his older brother. He doesn't know it's an arranged agreement so she'd have money for her poor family and he'd be free of Mom's nagging to marry. So CUTE!

Vid for it )

Then there is Sweet 18. [livejournal.com profile] calledinvain thought it was sweet, it stars Lee Dong Gun and Han Jin Hye, and hey, prosecutor forcibly married off to a much younger girl? Heeeeee.

Vid here )

Then there is Hotelier (as mentioned earlier)

Hotelier MV )

Then there is 18 vs 29 about a woman who wakes up forgetting everything that happened since she was 18. Her estranged husband tries to use this as an opportunity to win her back.

Vid here )

Then there is The Sweet Spy. A spy drama with the heroine an ass-kicking policewoman? YAY.

MV here )

Then there is Say You Love Me with Kim Rae Won, because I am on a KRW kick and hey the whole, 'bad girl tries to break up the OTP by getting her bf to seduce the girl and to seduce the guy herself because she is whack' is kinda awesome in a 'Dangerous Liasons' sort of way.

Opening theme )

There is also Life if Beautiful with Ha Ji-Won (Damo!!!) and Kim Rae Won but I didn't find any vids. I am also amused by the concept of Love Letter because heeeee, even Priests are not immune from lurve in kdramas. The hero is a Priest-in-training. Whoa.

And last note. My 'in progress' pile of dramas seems to be shrinking.

here is the list )
